Dallas Cowboys Re-Sign Quarterback


The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed backup quarterback Cooper Rush to a two-year, $6 million contract, with the first year and signing bonus fully guaranteed, according to reports from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Rush demonstrated his ability to step in as a starter last season when Dak Prescott was sidelined, winning four of his five starts with a 5:3 TD/INT ratio and 1,051 passing yards.

While Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has hinted that the team may add another quarterback in the draft, Rush's new contract solidifies his position as Prescott's primary backup. 

Entering his sixth NFL season, the 29-year-old has recorded a 59.0 completion percentage with 1,475 passing yards, and a 8:4 TD/INT ratio across 16 games played.
